Our Brand Personality

We harness our students' creativity by stimulating their imagination.

Our pedagogy encourages students to learn at their own pace, while feeling supported and being made aware of their successes every step of the way.

Our students enhance their skills through educational classroom games and by interacting with entertaining materials.

Our approach to teaching reading specifically links letters or groups of letters to sounds.

Our Brand Values

Children are naturally curious. We believe in harnessing that curiosity, making reading an adventure, not a chore. Kindling a life-long love of learning that will inspire, delight and reward.

There’s a very big world out there. We believe that children need confidence to make it their own. Becoming strong readers will give them that courage. Allowing them to make sense of their lives, and control their own destinies.

Reading is one of life’s most precious gifts. We encourage a love of reading by making learning joyful. We don’t believe in rote study, or repetitive drills. We open doors to a magical kingdom.

True reading demands understanding. We know there’s nothing more vital than being close to our learners. Giving them the support and encouragement to craft words into wings.

The I Can Read System originally came about through research conducted between 1995 and 2000 by Antony Earnshaw and Annabel Seargeant. It is structured, cumulative and hierarchical, and is the first system in the world to link clusters of letters to single sounds in a unique manner.

The I Can Read reading programme enables the student to see how letters combine to create invariant sounds and empowers the student to take control of his or her own reading progress.

I Can Read system teaches three essential skills that the new reader needs to succeed:

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Phonics
  • Blending sequences of phono-graphemes
The I Can Read reading programme overcomes the difficulties that new readers have to combine letters into blended sounds. It overcomes the problem of knowing how to pronounce words when so many letters and clusters of letters can be associated with more than one sound. Commencing with simple, straightforward words, the student progresses to learn more difficult phoneme combinations, building upon his or her successes along the way.
